Now that it's almost 2007, I've been noticing something that has got me in a rut. I haven't seen any new Python material for a year now. Their 40th anniversery is coming up in a few years, but are they going to do anything special, like what they did for the 30th Anniv? Or are they just going to feature another rehash of Flying Circus sketches we've seen thousands of times before and call it the 40th anniv. celebration (like they did with their 20th Anniversery)? Is there a future for Python?

I've heard that they are going to release one more movie but I don't know when or what about.

I doubt it'll happen. They probably can't work together anymore. However, I have heard of a new Python broadway play slated to hit in 2007 entitled "Not the Messiah", based on Life of Brian.

Ya, in 1990 they wanted to do a Holy Grail sequel (though I don't know how they could without Chapman) But Cleese said no.

Now, I just hope that we can get some new Python material soon.

Eric Idel has said he won't reunite with them to do Python any more. Anyway, anything new they do will have something seriously lacking since Graham's gone. I think we should all just accept the fact that they probably won't ever get back together to do a movie or sketches.

Don't be depressed! We must be happy that Python ever existed at all!! Could you imagine a world without Python? Too frightening to think about!!!!!! :shock:

exactly.
Everyone's always saying, new python, new python!
WHY??

Even if they did get back together now and do something, i doubt very much whether it would be anywhere as near as good as what they've done already. Quit while you're ahead, so to speak. Dont you want to the pythons to go out being remembered for the wonderful things they have done, or some half-funny thing that none of them actually wanted to do in the first place?

Besides, as people have said, they're all too busy doing their own things, and it would never properly be python without graham.

But that does not mean to say that I dont think there should be a 40th year thing... maybe some interveiws could be done, or try and get them all together for a reunion interveiw or something?

but back to the question: is python dead? no, only one of them :lol:

as still as there are devoted fans like us who come together to celebrate thier wonderful comedy, and there are still python dvds to be watched and people are watching them, python will never be dead.

Nope, Monty is immortal! Altough the members die sooner or later, Montys absurd spirit will surely be here forever ;)
